Call for fellows

Call for Fellows at CRI Research, 2018

CRI Research opens group leader positions to join our Collaborary. We seek candidates at different career stages, from postdoctoral young investigators to tenured scientists. Calls are now open for Short-term (3-6 months fellows). Next call for Core (5 year) and Long-term fellows will be at the end of 2018. 

We particularly call for candidates with interest in:

We call for researchers seeking ways in which synthetic and systems biology approaches could be harnessed towards achieving health-related sustainable goals. We seek candidates wishing to enhance our understanding of biological systems, to discover of nature’s governing mechanisms or to facilitate innovative routes through bioengineering, biodesign or biomimetics  approaches. We favour applications that delineate an open science approach, amenable to harness participative research across academia and public to successfully scale and catalyse their projects. Potential candidates may be inspired by the outcome paper of the advanced workshop on synthetic biology recently held at CRI.

We call for researchers seeking ways in which machine learning, deep learning, artificial intelligence, and big data can help to realize a fruitful future, based on sustainable equity and transparency. We seek candidates that combine existing approaches to be readily applied for challenges related to health and learning or that develop novel theoretical and experimental approaches to the continuous co-evolution of artificial and human intelligence (individual and collective) and to human-machine co-existence. We favour applications that delineate an open science approach, amenable to harness participative research across academia and public to successfully scale and catalyse their projects.

Other candidacies, focusing on other focal points of the CRI: Open health (from data-rich research to development of frugal software and hardware solutions, Open learning – from understanding learning to human-machine paradigms, Open phronesis – tackling contemporary ethical challenges at interfaces of Life, Digital and Learning Sciences, will be considered as well.
